There's more than a corporate raider's share of indulges to feast upon in director Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street -- available today on Digital HD and Blu-ray Combo Pack on March 25 -- and we have an exclusive look at the bonus features in which the stars explain how they grappled with the wild, hedonistic behavior of their characters -- even though they often disagreed with much of what they had to do from a moral standpoint.
Based on the true adventures of Wall Street wallbanger Jordan Belfort, Leonardo DiCaprio plays the title wealthy stockbroker, who made just shy of a million a week during the corporate-raiding '80s, living a life of hedonism and using illegal money operations until the federal government finally caught up with him.
Nominated for five Oscars including Best Picture, The Wolf of Wall Street reunites DiCaprio with Scorsese (they collaborated on Gangs of New York, The Aviator, The Departed and Shutter Island) for an outrageous exercise in '80s exce$$, with a stellar supporting cast that includes a loopy Matthew McConaughey, Margot Robbie, Jon Favreau, Kyle Chandler, Rob Reiner, Jean Dujardin and Kenneth Choi.
The Wolf of Wall Street Blu-ray Combo Pack includes a Digital Version of the film that can be accessed through UltraViolet, plus the bonus feature The Wolf Pack, in which Scorsese, DiCaprio, Hill and other cast and crew discuss the incredible journey of making the film.
